Why am I Running?

I am running because I have been very disappointed with the policies being advocated by Rep. Shimkus and Pres. Trump. I decided that the best way I can keep these policies from being implemented and to enact policies that will benefit this district and America is to run for Congress.

Why choose me?

I have experience with many topics that need to be addressed by Congress. My daughters buy their insurance through the ACA exchanges so I have experienced the benefits of the exchanges while seeing what could still be improved. I am a public school teacher so I have recent experience with what is and is not working in our schools. These issues are something I will work hard to find solutions to. I have lived my whole life in cities and towns in this district that haven’t always seen the benefits when the economy improves. I will fight to see that more is done so that the gains of our growing economy shared equally bottom to top. I have a young family and have seen how important family leave and health care are for all of us.
